After a long day of entering examination results appeals on behalf of many of the students of Glastry College, I was absolutely delighted when at 4.32pm a message popped up on my phone: 'A-level U turn!'

I immediately checked the BBC website to check the veracity of the report. My predominant thought was that someone had done the right thing - at last.

I think it is only proper that recognition is given to the Minister for Education, Mr Peter Weir, for doing the right thing.
